Running on no sleep

I haven't been able to blog in days, but this morning I finally got around to reading about half of my blogroll. And I just realized that I was logged in under my family blog. I am sorry about the confusion. This is the 1,843rd time I have done this - Sorry! Please do not comment on the family blog.

In my defense, I haven't gotten a decent night's sleep since last Friday. All of a sudden, Izzy refused to nap. He was also resisting bedtime. Then he started waking every hour or two at night. And by Monday, he was staying awake for HOURS in the middle of the night. I knew something was wrong, so I took him to the doctor yesterday. As I expected, he has an ear infection.

Izzy was given a prescription for amoxicillin, which I took to Target. 15 minutes later, we were on our way home. When I opened the bottle, I noticed that it had a citrus smell. I looked at the labeling and realized that it had been flavored with Orange. Izzy is very sensitive to citrus fruits. I knew that I shouldn't have given him the medicine, but I was tired and he was fussy, so I did. And I lived to regret that decision. Izzy cried and screamed and spit-up for HOURS. He couldn't keep anything down. So, I had to call target and have them refill the prescription with a cherry flavor instead. So frustrating. I am kind of pissed that they just added citrus flavoring without even asking me. Tons of people have allergies to citrus fruits. It seems like they would have consulted me.

Anyways, things kind of suck ass right now. I know I haven't been commenting as frequently as usually, but I still love you bloggy bloggers.

Oh how awful ! I would have been upset too,since he doesn't handle citrus very well. I hope he starts feeling better so you can get some sleep!

I'm so sorry! But I do think you should comment on my post from yesterday. I'm doing a great giveaway for a Bee Gee Bags clutch (if you don't want it - the holidays are right around the corner...) Anyway - I'll do the drawing on Tuesday - so no rush. Hope Izzy's feeling better soon!
